EcoQube Aquarium

$119 on Amazon Prime

 

The EcoQube C is the lowest maintenance desktop aquarium currently available. This small fish tank uses a Basil plant as part of the aquaponics filter to purify aquarium water. With this, you never have to change the filters or the aquarium water. Simply feed the fish 3-6x/week and top off with water 1-2x/month.

This is a handmade, flame polished, small aquarium kit with filter and light included! Aquarium decor and other accessories will not be included in this package.

DO TAKE NOTE: As this aquarium uses aquaponics to filter your water, you will have to make sure your plant is at least 1 inch tall before introducing your fish. This ensures that the plant is able to filter the amount of water in the tank. This will take up to two weeks if growing from seeds.

  • 4.8 OUT OF 5 STARS When you open your EcoQube Desktop Aquarium, you will see handmade quality
  • LOW MAINTENANCE ECOSYSTEM- aquaponics filter enables the plant to absorb ALL the Betta Fish waste

About EcoQube

Describe your product in 3 words.

Lowest Maintenance Aquarium

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

We’re a team of aquarium enthusiasts and have been our entire lives. While doing research at the largest aquaponics farm in the nation, we learned we could use basil to filter the fish waste. With the same method, aquaponics uses 90% less water grows food 2x as fast in 1/2 the space with no pesticides or fertilizers. We spent years to perfectly implement aquaponics into an aquarium creating the ecoqube, the lowest maintenance aquarium ever.

What makes your product special?

The Aquaponics system makes owning a fish easier than a conventional fish tank. The fish’s waste is used by the basil plant to grow and elminates the need for a water change. A few fish, some shrimp and a snail or two will give you the perfect balance for a low maintenance ecosystem.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

Through creating the EcoQube, we’ve been able to introduce the concept of sustainability to hundreds of thousands of people and helped nearly 10,000 people bring nature into their homes. Now we have a team dedicated to helping all our customers succeed with creating their very own window to nature with the EcoQube

Aquaponic Gardening: A Step-By-Step Guide to Raising Vegetables and Fish Together

$20 on Amazon Prime

 

Aquaponics is a revolutionary system for growing plants by fertilizing them with the waste water from fish in a sustainable closed system. A combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponic gardening is an amazingly productive way to grow organic vegetables, greens, herbs, and fruits, while providing the added benefits of fresh fish as a safe, healthy source of protein. On a larger scale, it is a key solution to mitigating food insecurity, climate change, groundwater pollution, and the impacts of overfishing on our oceans.

Aquaponic Gardening is the definitive do-it-yourself home manual, focused on giving you all the tools you need to create your own aquaponic system and enjoy healthy, safe, fresh, and delicious food all year round. Starting with an overview of the theory, benefits, and potential of aquaponics, the book goes on to explain:
System location considerations and hardware components
The living elements–fish, plants, bacteria, and worms
Putting it all together–starting and maintaining a healthy system
Aquaponics systems are completely organic. They are four to six times more productive and use ninety percent less water than conventional gardens. Other advantages include no weeds, fewer pests, and no watering, fertilizing, bending, digging, or heavy lifting–in fact, there really is no downside! Anyone interested in taking the next step towards self-sufficiency will be fascinated by this practical, accessible, and well-illustrated guide.

AquaSprouts Garden

$169 on Amazon Prime

We designed the AquaSprouts Garden to bring the revolutionary principles of aquaponic farming into the home, office, and classroom, because we believe aquaponics offers something to benefit everyone. By combining fishkeeping and hydroponic gardening, aquaponics does things that neither can do alone, dramatically reducing waste and maintenance. By circulating the water from your aquarium through the Garden’s bed, the AquaSprouts Garden recycles fish waste to provide vital nutrients for growing plants, leaving the water clean and clear without the need for additional filters or frequent water changes.

The Garden’s design is simple, freestanding, and virtually maintenance-free, making indoor gardening and a beautiful aquarium accessible to anyone regardless of experience with fish or plants. It eliminates the need for traditional fertilizers using the same principles that recycle wastes in natural ecosystems, making upkeep as simple as feeding your fish. We built the Garden to fit over any standard 10-gallon aquarium, including existing tanks, making it the perfect way to grow fresh herbs and vegetables or beautiful ornamentals anywhere.

  • Self-sustaining aquarium and garden
  • Transform any 10-gallon aquarium (20″ x 10″ x 12″)
  • Grow your favorite veggies, herbs and greens anywhere, all-year-round
  • Perfect tool to explore how our natural environment works

About Back to the Roots

In a college class, we learned mushrooms could grow entirely on spent coffee grounds. After watching hours of how-to videos and turning our fraternity kitchen into a big science experiment, we eventually decided to give up our corporate job offers to instead become full-time mushroom farmers. What started as curiosity about urban farming has turned into a passion to Undo Food™ and reconnect families back to where it comes from through fun and delicious ready to grow and ready to eat products. 

And that passion to Undo Food is what took us from organic mushroom kits to stoneground breakfast cereal. Sometimes, we want to grow food ourselves, taste the absolute freshness, and show kids how mushrooms or herbs grow. And at the other times, we’re busy, running out the door, and we just want to eat something – like breakfast cereal – that’s already been cooked for us. But we believe the underlying trust, transparency, and consciousness shouldn’t change from the produce aisle to the grocery aisle, or from ready to grow toready to eat. We believe in a future where all food comes from the kitchen, not a lab; and where R&D teams aren’t biochemists, but our grandparents.

About OWI

As the saying goes, “Our children are the future.” And if anything is certain about the future, it is that renewable energy sources and green technologies will play a major role in our children’s lives for everything from using wind or solar power generated on site in their homes, to driving alternative fuel vehicles, or embarking on a career in one of America’s future “green” technology jobs.

With alternative energy playing such a pivotal role, there is no better time than now to start children on the path to learning basic concepts behind these technologies. Fortunately, a host of educational – and yes, fun – age-appropriate toys are available to parents and educators designed to teach children about alternative energy concepts.

Educational toys have many advantages as a learning tool. Simply sitting a child down and teaching them about alternative energy will not necessarily ignite their enthusiasm or interest in the topic. Nor will having them read about it as a sole strategy, not when so many children are reluctant, struggling readers, or kinesthetic learners.

Although science kits are helpful, they often depend on expert guidance and have limited play value – which is a tough sell when parents and educators are competing with TV, video games, the Internet, and a host of modern distractions. Instead, a host of science-based, interactive children’s toys on the market are being used to teach children about alternative energy concepts like solar, wind, and “green” vehicles, in a fun, hands-on way.

In 1980, OWI Incorporated, was looking for a way to expand its consumer product lines and bring its extensive technology background to the educational community. RobotiKits™ and OWIKits® were developed to affordably introduce students to robotics technology.

The kits are available in five difficultly levels–ranging from beginners with no experience up to advanced circuit board soldering and mechanical assembly– challenging builders from grade school to adult. In conjunction with educators, OWI Inc. has developed a fully structured teaching curriculum with modules tailored to the kit’s unique electronic and mechanical features.
